FactsLithium's Atomic Number is 3 and it's Atomic Mass is 6.941. There are 3 electrons in Lithium. The way you can figure that out is to look at the Atomic number and what ever the number is that is the amount of electrons. There are 3 protons in Lithium. The way you can figure that out is the same way you find the number of electrons. There is 4 neutrons in Lithium because the way you find it is to subtract the Atomic Mass by the Atomic Number. The element Lithium is a metal.

UsesLithium has many uses in the world today. Three of the most popular uses are the air conditioners, batteries, and medicine. Lithium is used for all of them because it is found pure in the earth.
